Letter from Jacqueline Lee Lewes

I wonder if you have any further information about Adolphus Lee Lewes and his brother Fred. I have just read something on the Lewis.com page about them and Woodland. Their father, John Lee Lewes from the Hudson Bay Company, was my great great grandfather and I am trying to get more information about their lives in Canada. Their brothers Albert (my great grandfather) and Audley came to Australia. I am trying to establish if they all had the same mother - Jane Ballentine/Ballantyne/Ballenden whom John Lee Lewes (no sic, it is Lee Lewes not Lewis) at Cumberland House on the Saskatchewan in about 1814. I read somewhere else that Adolphus was part-Indian which makes the family tree rather more interesting.
